EU wants ‘right to be forgotten’

The European Commission on Wednesday presented a new "comprehensive" reform on data protection rules. This to replace the current laws that came into force back in 1995. Brussels wants to give people more control over their personal data by introducing the controversial "right to be forgotten". Under the proposed law, people can ask companies to delete information that they hold about them. Companies who don't comply could face fines of up to 2% of their annual turnover.
